Interning at Boys by Girls

8 September 2016

Have you ever wanted to work at a magazine to really learn how it's all put together? To see how our stories are shaped, and build your experience? Have you ever wondered what the inside office jokes are, and wanted to understand what happends behind the scenes at an independent magazine? We currently have available slots for internships this autumn (September till December).

Boys by Girls magazine offer a varied internship in a relaxed and intimate environment, that will develop both you as a person and your professional self. The internship will push you to new limits, enable you to grow your creativity and offers an opportunity of professional practice in a real working environment.

Our internships are quite intense, and you will be expected to do a lot more than just get coffee. Actually, you may never have to make coffee, unless it is for yourself. BBG internships are 3 months long, 5 days per week. You will be involved in most sides of the magazine, so there is a lot to learn. You will become a valued member of the team during your time with the magazine. We look for individuals who have strong skills, lots of passion, an understanding of the brand already, and have a hard working, whilst humble attitude. Whether your speciality area is photography, writing, design or anything else related, you will be asked to do a variety of tasks to help run the website and social media of Boys by Girls.

Through your internship, you will also be given one-to-one mentoring, to help guide you within your focus area and where you want to grow. Through the daily work, social events and mentoring sessions, you will leave with an invaluable amount of first hand practice and guidance. We gather a few people to talk about their experience at Boys by Girls, so have a look below how they have been able to use their BBG journey as a stepping stone into the "real" world.

Applicants should be based in or around London for easy commutes to the office. Please note that these are unpaid internships and unfortunately we cannot pay travel costs. Interested? Then send us your CV with a cover letter to:
